2. Numbness in the Ankles or Feet
Numbness is one of the first potential symptoms that can be associated with Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, and often with other related stress injuries like CTS. When it’s caused by an injury like Tarsal Tunnel, the numbness you experience will be due to the nerve damage the condition causes – often, surgery will be required by the point the injury has caused numbness.
Sometimes the symptom might appear as tingling, but the numbness of the skin (that feels a lot like the recent application of general anesthetic) is very common – and if it happens anywhere from the ankles to the feet with some of the other symptoms mentioned on this list, then you should make a doctor’s appointment to get the symptom checked out.
Tingling and numbness of the feet is a possible indicator of TTS, but not a sure one. The same symptom might also be caused by trapped nerves elsewhere in the body (including the spine, hips, and neck) or could indicate early warning signs of underlying conditions that are vast enough to include diabetes.
For any sudden changes in your health, see your doctor for a proper check-up.
